Do you agree that when there's tension and an obsession to want to hit the ball is when you hit it worst? You have to be loose.
Enrique Pena Nieto
I was super brainy and a proper geek at school, but there would always be a boy. But that sort of obsession did turn me into a songwriter. My writing has always come from that feeling of infatuation.
I say Democrats should not be afraid to talk about the morality of life, of caring for children who are born. It seems the Republican obsession with being pro-life lasts about nine months. After that, it's each baby for herself.

After working with many nutritionists, reading books, and practicing trial and error on my own body, I have finally found a way to control my weight without deprivation.

You cannot intellectualize yourself out of obsession. You cannot cure yourself of it.

Most of my readers think I'm obsessed with time management, but they haven't seen the other - much more legitimate, much more extreme - obsession.

I guess it could be said that the inspiration for 'Requiem for a Dream' is watching the American dream not only destroy so many lives in the U.S., but infect the rest of the world with its obsession with getting more, ignoring the deadly effect that has on the planet.
Hubert Selby, Jr.
